Meet the passionate people that give life to Entropica Labs.

People are the raw energy of a Company. Entropicans are physicists, makers and problem solvers, who strive to create a culture where it is more important to get it right rather than being right. We organise regular discussions to present ideas, share knowledge and stay updated with the latest results in quantum computing. Our Idea Clubs provide opportunities for everyone in the Team to learn new skills, engage with one another and continue in our growth.

Leonardo Disilvestro

Technical Product Manager

In the previous decade, Leonardo has graduated as a theoretical physicist from the University of Edinburgh, managed to earn himself a PhD in quantum information theory from Telecom ParisTech, and has successfully learned how to code and be a programmer.

He is pretty pleased with the way things have turned so far, so he has decided to become a proper quantum scientist, and now he enjoys working at Entropica labs while busking in Singapore's tropical climate. In his free time, he likes to cook,  walk his dog, and train for the next marathon.

Vishal Sharma

Quantum Algorithms Scientist

Vishal graduated in Engineering and Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India and the Ludwig Maximilians Universität Munich, Germany respectively. At Entropica, he studies the physics of these machines and explores the benefits of having a lower level (and finer) control over the qubits.When not thinking about Quantum Computers, Vishal loves to learn about the origin and evolution of languages, human migration patterns and tracing common origins. He appreciates minimalism in design and art and practices the same in choices and ownership.

Adrien Vandenbroucque

Optimisation Scientist

Vandenbroucque | Optimisation Scientist

Adrien holds a Master’s degree in Data Science from EPFL (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne).

His interests span a whole range of topics, including quantum computing, information theory and machine learning. He likes to spend time understanding the theory behind mathematical problems and implementing solutions to have a real-world impact. He likes to play the guitar (which he takes wherever he travels), do martial arts, photography, and read books in his free time.

9 - Rajesh.jpg
Rajesh Mishra

Quantum Algorithms Scientist

Rajesh is currently completing a Master in Mathematics from the National University of Singapore. He has worked in areas of noise tomography in quantum hardware, quantum error correction at Singapore's Centre for Quantum Technologies and recently in numerical linear algebra as part of his Masters' thesis.

Away from his desk, he dreams of being a triathlete (however he revealed that, in reality, he still can't swim). He satisfies his passion for exploration (nature and food) using his running shoes and bicycle. Apart from sports, he enjoys travelling, reading books, watching stand-up comedy and chatting with people about their burning passions.

11 - Meng_edited.png
Meng Hua

Quantum Computing Scientist

Meng is completing her PhD in Physics at the University of Virginia. She also holds a bachelors from Sun Yat-sen University. Her research focuses on the interplay of topology and quantum mechanics, exploring the deep connection between abstract math and physics. She also worked on topological order with emergent particles, a concept that might eventually lead to fault-tolerant quantum computing.

Meng is a fan of deep tech and always trying to make the future become real (a vision we eagerly embrace at Entropica). She played basketball for her school in college. In her free time, she enjoys playing GO and piano.
